- I now am a lot more relaxed and my back and shoulders are relaxed. I feel my neck has emerged from my shoulders. I sleep a lot deeper. – ClaireWeber, Citysearch

Body & Brain Holistic Yoga
After undertaking a three-week foray into asceticism, Body & Brain Holistic Yoga's founder Ilchi Lee reached an epiphany about the interconnectedness of the body, the mind, and the universe at large. In an effort to share his newfound philosophies with others, Lee formulated a holistic yoga technique adapted from a 9,000-year-old text and sun do, an ancient Korean practice that mixes yoga, tai chi, and meditation techniques. Nowadays, senior and basic instructors teach Lee's curriculum at facilities across the county, where students can tap ki energy during various classes and workshops, including Dahn yoga classes, healing chakra workshops, and the five-step Brain Education Systems Training (BEST). BEST training teaches natural healing techniques that rely on the brain and involve no copays to the medulla oblongata. Each program at Brain & Body Holistic Yoga is designed to imbue participants with physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual benefits.
